“Gov. Scott Walker’s embattled jobs agency hasn’t properly verified the number of jobs created by businesses receiving taxpayer money because it didn’t review payroll records, state auditors told lawmakers on Wednesday.The chief legal counsel for the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. also acknowledged to the Legislature’s Joint Audit Committee that she didn’t offer an opinion on whether to distribute loans or tax credits to businesses that ended up not creating the number of jobs they promised, sent jobs outside of the United States, or have failed to repay taxpayer funds loaned to them.”
